The pace of healthcare spending is expected to accelerate rapidly in the United States owing to numerous factors. With the innovation of new drugs in the country, there is a need for different and effective ways of their promotion. Further, the presence of generic drugs has forced many pharmaceutical companies to embrace new business strategies and advertise their products. In this era of digitisation, healthcare corporations are also digitally transforming themselves which has further led to the introduction of electronic health records, telemedicine and remote medical monitoring systems. Along with this, mobile advertising has emerged as a popular channel for advertising since it offers improved personalization, and marketers see the platform as a way to optimize consumer targeting. Additionally, government’s support to direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertising, which aims towards the end patient rather than healthcare professionals, has further boosted the US healthcare advertising market. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to reach a value of USD 450 Billion by 2021.
